St John, Colchester

I include St John for the same reason people climb Everest.

ST JOHN, Ipswich Road. 1864 by Arthur Blomfield (GR) and still with the grit which he possessed in his youth. Red brick with yellow and blue bricks and stone dressings. Nave and chancel. Small and low W baptistery with timber porches l. and r., and the weirdest (and most tasteless) way to connect this with a bellcote which is circular, with a conical roof and a kind of open lantern with thick short black columns.

St John (1)

Mee missed it.
